Welshpool Mid Wales Airport lies in the beautiful Severn valley and is on the edge of some of the most stunning open flying country anywhere in the UK.
Developed from the 1990s onwards, the airport is now a home for numerous business and light aircraft. It is also the base for the Mid Wales Air Ambulance. Here you can get lessons and gain a licence flying helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and microlights. You could also just come along and watch the comings and goings of a busy general aviation hub.
We were delighted earlier in the month to get a visit by an Aerospatiale SA330 Puma from the Royal Air Force, refuelling on the way back to RAF Benson. Not to be outdone, the Royal Navy sent in, not just one but two AugustaWestland EH101 Merlins. Now we are just waiting for the Army to pop in to tick them off our list!
